    Went to Costco in Melrose Park today to pick up some King Crab Legs. The cooler where they usually keep the fish was half filled with Prime Beef cuts. The main one that caught my eye was the Prime Ribeye Tomahawk cut steaks that were $12.49/ lb. They were 2 to a package, running 3 to 4 lbs per package. Unfortunately when I saw them I was already over my Costco per trip budget.

    I appreciate the heads up on this, because I've been really disappointed with the (lack of) flavor and (mushy, rag-like) texture of several cuts of beef I've bought at local grocery stores over the past few months, and I've started thinking Costco may be the only cost-effective way for me to test out whether some prime cuts solve the problem. JoelF suggested the other day that I check out the prime brisket at Costco. I'm going to look for the prime tomahawk ribeyes you mentioned at the Mettawa or Lake Zurich Costco.

    Mariano's has their Tomahawks on sale for $10/lb at least at the Bannockburn store.

    Mariano's are choice, but often there are some that are as marbled as prime, you just have to be selective. Are the costco ones frenched? Marianos usually are, but I prefer untrimmed.....the meat along the bone is fantastic.
